1. In the space provided, choose a scale, then draw a sketch of the displacement for each shot the golfer made. Label the magnitude of each vector and the angle of each vector relative to the horizontal axis.

I am really bad at diagraming things, so can somebody list step by step how I would sketch this problem?

2. Use algebraic formulas to find x and y components of each displacement vector.

Shot 1 x component _______ y component _______

Shot 2 x component _______ y component _______

Shot 3 x component _______ y component _______

Shot 4 x component _______ y component _______

I just need to know what algebraic formulas I would use to solve this problem.

Thanks.

Vertical component= velocity*sinTheta

Horizonal component=velocity*cosTheta

You really should understand why these are so.....If you dont understand it, you are in big trouble ahead.
